Richardson, former residents of the resort,
bought the rental rights of the resort and are
planning a long-awaited phase-3 expansion
that is expected to reach completion by the
end of 2018.
Currently, the 12-year-old community
boasts 400 lots, and the Richardsons will be
expanding it to about 470 when the project
is done. The resort already offers many ame-
nities like a 14-hole golf course, two com-
munity pools, a system of pristine lakes, a
tennis court, and a clubhouse where weekly
events and concerts are held. Many of these
features will be getting a make-over with the
new phase. The clubhouse will be extended
by about 3,000 feet, and a brand-new, state-
of-the-art sports complex with shuffleboard
and bocce ball courts will be installed. A
third pool will be put in, as well as another
lake, and another four holes will be added to
the golf course.
Nearly 60 of the new lots will be fitted with From left, John and Lynn Richardson, who own the rental rights of Motorcoach Resort of St. Lucie West, and Tom Kmiek, president of the homeowners association. PHOTO: MITCH KLOORFAIN
